Unbiased Taxonomic Annotation of Metagenomic Samples

J Comput Biol
PMCID: 5865273
PMID: 29028181
DOI: 10.1089/cmb.2017.0144

[…] binary reference taxonomy is a rooted caterpillar, as every internal node (and also the root) has one big descendant clade and one small (with only one node) descendant clade. Borrowing the notion of total cophenetic index for phylogenetic trees (Mir et al., ) to measure the balance of reference taxonomies, complete binary trees have indeed the minimum value while rooted caterpillars have the maxi […]


Phylogenetic evidence that both ancient vicariance and dispersal have contributed to the biogeographic patterns of anchialine cave shrimps

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5460120
PMID: 28588246
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-03107-y

[…] tochondrial genes (PCGs). Nucleotide substitution saturation was assessed using the Xia’s test. The balance of the phylogenetic tree obtained under the best partitioning scheme was measured using the total cophenetic index. PartitionFinder was used to explore the partitioning schemes and evolutionary models for the standard DNA-based and the protein-based analyses. Tree topologies were analysed us […]
